Our two cedar log cottages are located right on the magnificent Bras d'Or Lake and are hidden from each other in a twelve acre wooded area to secure your privacy. They are fully equipped for your holiday (towels and linens also provided), with a nice kitchen and all the amenities, barbecue, living room, two bedrooms (1 queensize, the other 2 single beds), bathroom , veranda, electric heating. It's a proven favorite for honeymooners, but even a family of five can be housed, and all may enjoy the quiet retreat and the potential that the Bras d'Or Lake offers. Use our splendid beach to stretch out in the sun, have a swim, go snorkeling or fishing or just wander off collecting beach rocks. Hidden on the same property where we live, about 4 km from the log cottages, you can also rent our spa...Our two cedar log cottages are located right on the magnificent Bras d'Or Lake and are hidden from each other in a twelve acre wooded area to secure your privacy.

Use our splendid beach to stretch out in the sun, have a swim, go snorkeling or fishing or just wander off collecting beach rocks. Hidden on the same property where we live, about 4 km from the log cottages, you can also rent our spacious two-bedroom boathouse cottage, equally well equipped and priced, located right on the sheltered inlet of the Bras d'Or Lake, and with a dock to launch a kayak or canoe and a beach to swim close by. You can explore the various waterways and islands by kayak or canoe (we have a wide selection of kayaks & canoes for rent, and we offer lessons and tours). You can also rent a bicycle, or hike in the woods and watch birds and pick berries or mushrooms. Our area offers many other activities like golfing at the nearby Dundee Resort, diving, sailing or horseback riding. And the magnificent long sandy beach of Point Michaud or the French speaking fishing community of Isle Madame can be reached in 45 minute by car. Plan for a full day excursion to see the famous Cabot Trail and the historic Fortress of Louisbourg. The picturesque Town of St. Peters is just a 15 minutes drive away where you can do all your errands, go to restaurants, visit museums or go hiking in the Provincial Battery Park which also features a campground right on the Ocean.More

We really enjoyed our stay. It's the perfect place to relax with lake view and access to a private beach. We enjoyed watching the deer and hummingbirds around the cabin and the sunset at the beach.

You can get the key for the log cottage at our house and office at 5385 West Bay Hwy, located about 20 km from West Bay and 20 km from the town of St. Peters., the area is called Roberta. I will either lead you to your log cottage ( 4km from our house) or give you directions. As for the boathouse cottage, it is only 100 m down from our house and the keys are in the lock . There is Wifi available in front of our office ( parking lot). We love to inform you about the area and what is has to offer and will be happy to help you answering your questions.
